Franschhoek Wine Valley

A quartet of culinary creations

It’s time to pack away the Winter blues and celebrate the splendor of Spring. A time for celebrations, superb wines and world-class cuisine – treating your taste buds to the culinary creations of the Four Coursemen.

Borne out of their passion for creating world-class food the Four Coursemen Series is a collaboration between acclaimed chefs, Michelle Theron (Pierneef à la Motte), Eric Bulpitt (Faber), Chris Erasmus (Foliage) and Arno Janse van Rensburg (The Kitchen at Maison Estate). Teamwork of this magnitude is guaranteed to take dining to the next level.

Michelle Theron (Pierneef à la Motte) 

During the months of September, October and November food enthusiasts will be treated to a series of dining experiences hosted and presented by these culinary masters. What sets it apart from the rest is that although each chef will have an opportunity to host an event at their restaurant, the evening will include the masterpiece of each individual chef. Each chef will have the opportunity to prepare and present one course at each of the four evenings.

Masters in their field this is the perfect opportunity to experience the creations of award-winning chefs. Foliage, The Kitchen at Maison and Pierneef à la Motte are all recipients of the internationally recognized Eat Out Awards. Although Faber is still in its infancy, Chef Eric Bulpitt has twice secured a spot on the coveted Eat Out Awards List, being 2011 and 2014, for restaurants he previously represented.

  • 28 September (dinner at The Kitchen at Maison)
